Without more information I can't be sure of your problem but I will make a guess that you removed the door without engaging the hinge locks. I am attaching a video that may help. All oven door hinges are not the same. Some require you to insert a screwdriver or pin in a hole to stop the hinge from retracting. My own oven door has retainers that snap onto the slot just above the hinge. When you remove the door these pieces are used to hold the hinge in the open position.
If the hinges are in the closed position you will have to figure out how to open them and hold them in the open position. Be Careful. The springs are very strong and can hurt you. I am including a link to a youtube video that may be the same as your oven door.

The door slides onto the two hinges and is held in place with two gravity operated latches. I'm not sure of the condition of your range but it sounds like the door was forced or lifted rapidly allowing the one side to release. The only solution I know of is to remove the other side and reinstall. The hinges have multiple locking positions so the next time you are cleaning your oven, open the door about 8 inches, find the small latches in the door hinge groove, and hold them upwards as you lift the door towards yourself.
The hinges should remain slightly opened. For installation, lower the door onto the hinge posts and pull it outwards slightly.
You can remove the oven door and dis-assemble it to clean it but you are looking at quite a task to do so.. Most of the kitchen aid brand requires two pins to be inserted into the door hinges while the door is in the open position to allow the door to be open. When you have inserted the pins into the hinge start to close the door and the pressure of the hinge spring will be applied to the pins allowing you to now lift on the door removing it from it's slots in the face of the oven. The hinge will slide out of the oven face.
Once you have the door removed you can begin the task of taking the door apart. Lay the door inside part down on a table or counter, remove the screws from the bottom of the door trim (piece that holds lower part of glass) and remove the trim. Now you should be able to slide the outer glass downwards (some models required side trims to be removed also). Now you can remove the handle assembly and then begin to remove the inner door liner and inner glass package. Be careful and pay attention to screw size/location. Take pictures at each step to aid in re-assembly! Good luck!!
In order to reinstall the door you will need to extend the hinges out on both sides...You will notice a small hole at each hinge..Insert a nail in to each hole (one on each hinge)...Set the hinge so that the it is extended outward with nail in place...Once completed set the door back onto the oven with hinges inserted into slots in housing....Open the door as far as it will go...Remove the nails ..The door should now work properly..
You said, accidentally removed the door to my range and now it won't go back on. The door won't go back into the slots on the range.

i dont know how you got the door off the is a lock for each hinge lay the door down with hinges facing up.take a towel pull long piece of hinge toward you(BE CAREFUL) take other piece up and lock them together do the same to the other hinge it should then go on easy next time lock before taking off
I finally got my door back on, I had to wedge a butter knife in the hinge to keep it open, then I could put it back on the pins and slide the metal cover/locking thinge over it. Was a pain in the ass.
